Week 11: Making the Grade

They've graded our yard to prep for landscaping. Some of the other houses on the street now have some basic landscaping, though no sod yet.

Priming the outside of the house. The Hardie Plank comes primed, but our builder adds an additional coat of primer using the same color as the finished house. The additional primer is supposed to help the final paint stick better and last longer, as well as seal the planks a bit more. When it's all done it will of course be more even, and a little bit glossier. The trim will be painted white.

You can see the knockout texture on the drywall inside.

We have our own local color too! It's not as vibrant as in New England, but it's still very pretty. It's so nice to have seasons again!
